Have been coming to this place for a few years now. Always great service and awesome food! They are always very busy, so worth booking a table, but it’s always worth the wait!

Heard a lot of good reports on Ramen Takara and decided to give it a go. Well worth it, great choice of dishes and all well prepared. Service was quick but that's because it was early in the evening. Will definitely go back.

I have tried the Miso Ramen, Tonkatsu Ramen which are great but the Sai-Sai Ramen is my favourite. All staff are Japanese which is important in a Japanese restaurant. Friendly, genuine place I will keep coming back.

What a great Japanese place in Browns Bay at Auckland's North Shore. Friendly and fast service, fresh Asahi beer on tap. The real deal: authentic, tasty Japanese food with great flavours and fresh, good-quality ingredients. Highly recommendable.

Best Ramen in Auckland. Have been going here for years now and never disappointed, my favourite of course is Tonkotsu. The place has recently had an facelift which hasn't affected the food at all it is still great I will be back again soon.

RAMEN TAKARA is not your typical Japanese restaurant, instead of featuring tempura or sushi, we put our heart and effort into our ramen and rice dishes. We even make our own noodles everyday using the finest flour, mineral water and fresh eggs. Whether you are picking up a meal on the go, having a family dinner, or enjoying a drink with your friends, this is the right place to enjoy the refreshing and plesant dining experience. Bookings are not essential but we recommended that you make a booking in advance to avoid disappointment, especially on weekends!
